Jeff Adams has written stories since he was in middle school and became a published author in 2009 when his first short stories were published. He writes both gay romance and LGBTQ young adult fiction…and there’s usually a hockey player at the center of the story.

Jeff lives in northern California with his husband of more than twenty years, Will Knauss. Some of his favorite things include the musicals "Rent" and "[title of show]," the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins hockey teams, and the reality TV competition "So You Think You Can Dance." He also loves to read, but there isn’t enough space to list out his favorite books.

Hank Edwards

A stranded hockey player and a gay romance author who prefers isolation. What a delicious treat this story is. When Nick, a player for the Bruins, gets his rental car stuck during a snowstorm, he strikes out for the one sign of life he can see: smoke from a fire. This is how he arrives on Shawn’s porch, who lives alone in the countryside and prefers it that way. He also happens to have a big ol’ crush on Nick, and a folder on his laptop of photos of Nick to help inspire his writing. I loved how patient Nick was with Shawn, understanding he’s an introvert and giving him space when needed. Nick also made himself useful in the kitchen as well as the bedroom. Where can I sign up my house to be a hockey player hostel? Plenty of heat and romance in this sweet and sexy story to keep the winter chills at bay!

Stella Shaw

Such a delightful story of two men who think they’re doing well on their own, blindsided by a sudden, deep spark of attraction. So cute that Shawn used Nick as a romantic model, then here he is in the flesh! Two completely different men – one introvert, one in the public eye – and living in different parts of the country, at first they can’t see how to make things work. What I really loved, though, was their honesty and ability to communicate – and fight for that HEA!
